Dear NREL-team,

how can I implement a winglet configuration in your reference 5MW system? I want to analyse some fatigue load cases.

Kind regards,
Thomas Barsch

Dear Thomas,

Well, you can add curvature to the structural blade model in BeamDyn to model the winglet structure. Likewise, you you can add curvature to the aerodynamic blade model in AeroDyn v15, but the model has not really been validated under these conditions (at least by NREL).

Best regards,
